Gold Saving Made Easy 
a New Devise. 

We have heretofore made me: 
of the new gold saving devise, ii 
ted by Mr. Allbright, and this is 
lie says about it 




crushing quartz or any gang matter 
from an auriferous vein is the old style 
stamp mill with the copper plate 

free milling, it is the best process for 
pulverizing the ore for other future 
treatment. But millions of dollars are 
yearly lost by ignoring i he fact that all 
ores cannot be treated by amalgama- 

vvhy this cannoi he don.- and they are:. 

1st, Where the gold is imbedded in 
infinitismal particles in the pyrites of 
iron or sulphurets. 

2nd. Where the gold particles are ox- 
idized, thai- is, where the particles of 
gold are coated with oxide of iron. 

And thirdly (and more often is this 
the case) that the gold particles are so 
small and fine that after they leave the 
battery they are carried off the plate 
by the water without having touched 
the mercury or plate. If such a par- 
ticle happens to be on top of the same 
when it leaves the battery and there is 
no obstruction to its course, it will pass 
off and not be caught, and for this rea- 
son mill men that- are not aware of this 
fact have contrived some obstruction 
by cutting the plates and placing them 
step-like thus lo cause little waterfalls 
and eddys, thereby to disturb the 
straight course for freedom. In all cas- 
es the time allowed the gold particles 
to pass the length of the plate, or 
plates, is too short, for on a straight 
surface like the common amalgamating 
plate there is no obstruction offered, 
no turning or twisting or falling to 
force every particle of pulp and gold to 
touch the plate. The Turtle Shell Gold 
Saver if placed on the plate in proper 
shape which requires no expert to do, 

but can be performed by a ten-year- 
old boy, will so retard, twi ' -

Valuable Land For Sale. 

I offer for sale the farm known a 
Berry Larmon place on Kimblewi 
creek in Lumpkin county. 'The plac

buildings, and good apple orcl

contact with the mercury. 

It has been repeatedly shown and 
■moustrafed by the geologists of 
,'orgia and treated of in their reports, 
that there, are many belts of soft de- 
posed auriferous mica-schist, con- 
ing quartz stringers which fre- 
quently carry considerable gold, mak- 
ing the entire gold belt a low grade 
ore body, which, when worked intelli- 
gently and with proper economy, will 
yield a very fair average return. 

While the extravigant idea of flood- 
ing the ore through a flume, from the 
open cut to the mill, can be operated 
at a cost of from 12 to 15 cents per ton 
including the cost of milling; yet so 
much of the gold is lost by this process ; 
unaided by some devise that will re- 
cover and prevent the flour gold to be 
carried off by the water and pass over 
the plates. Now the desideratum has 
been invented and patented and is call- 
ed by the inventor The Turtle Shell

The price of corn and fodder in 
Dahlonega for the past few months 
should be an inducement for boys 
to go from the town to the coun

500 bundles of fodder which realiz-

A very euthusistic railroad tnc-ct- 
g was held at the court house 
■Saturday afternoon, at 
quite a large number of 
citizens. Addresses were deliver- 
ed by Gen. Warner, Judge Mur- 
ray and Col. Charters in the inter- 
est of the proposed line, showing 
the great benefits that would be de- 
rived from the enterprise in a nut 
shell so that all could thoroughly 
understand. Gen. Warner said 
ho felt confident that he could get 
northern capitalists interested 
Our citizens were asked to help only 
as far as they feel able, no portion 
of the money being due until the 
line is completed and the cars rail- 
ing on same. Over $4,000 were 
subscribed on the spot, making 
nearly $9,000 already raised, in- 
eluding the amount heretofore subs 
scribed and paid in most of which 
has already been spent in survey- 
ing, etc. .The solicitation of sub- 
scriptions will still bo continued 
and eyery enterprising citizen who

The rain which yisited a por-

Last Friday morning the citi^

by a certain man and his wife who 
were fighting. We would give 
their names but the matter has not 
reached the courts yet, and are not

The last clean up at the Cal- 
houn mine was a-splendid one as 
usual. Mr. Whorton Anderson, 
the superintendent, is not work- 
ing itlhe mine for his health ox for 
a show, bmt for the purpose of 
making money which any one visit- 
ing the mine can very readily ace,

to develop gold mines or do any- 
thing else without having money 
to pay his laborers, and we hope 
3lse will ever try it in this

to believe that they would get

Some of the farmers of this 
county are opposed to any railroad 
being built to Dahtoncga because 
they think it will reduce the price 
of their products. They don't take 
into consideration what they 
lose on their produce caused by a 
railroad will be made up in the re^ 
ductioa of goods which they have 
to purchase. Some of you far- 
mers will haul your corn and sell 
it at Dahlonega because you can 
get a good price for it and then 
take the money and go to a rail- 
road town and purchase such artic- 
les as you need in another county ' ceiling in thi 
because you can get them cheaper. 
And a few others charge the corns 
pany as much for a right of way 
through their farms as they re- 
the whole lands for taxes.

serously and do all you can to help 
build up your county. A railroad

Mrs. Tilda Findley's residence 

in Dahlonega was struck by light- 
ning and considerably damaged. 
The chimey in the south end was 
destroyed and mirrors of bureaus 
and everything else of this nature 
in two rooms were broke into 
hundreds of pieces except two 
lamps on a table by a water pitchs 
The pitcher was busted and 
the lamps uninjured. Rev. J. E.

gash to the skull about two inches 
long, ■stuuning him so that he

The Crown Mountain stock has 
©eaarly all been sold, and in a short 
time now the entire plant will be 
in running order. Twenty of the 
stamps of the big mill were al- 
ready in position last Sunday. The 
works of this company are attract- 
ing the attention of the people 
both at home and abroad, and it is 
the universal opinion of all that 
the mine will pay handsome divi- 
dends. They have the most mod- 
ern machinery that can be pro- 
cured, and really it looks like it is 
impossible for the least bit of 
gold to escape, J. L. Davis, a 
placer miner who has made good 
wages in working below some of 
the mills, catching the lost gold, 
said to us last Sunday if he had 
no other place to work except be- 
low the Crown Mountain plant he 
would perish to death. 

Development work down on the 
Standard property still continues

each other which its owners have 
never seen. Mr. Ray is engaged 
this week in cleaning out the old 
Tahloneka shaft in the bottom of 
which is a large vein about eight 
feet thick worth $3 per ton. So 
he says. Mr. Ray has heretofore 
examined it, and certainly knows 
for he has been at work down in 
that neighborhood for the past 
fourteen years, and is the only

subscribers to the Daily and Suus 
day Constitution a year's tuition at 
any educational institution ill

eycry ambitious boy or girl who 
will take advantage of the propor-

the reach of one determined to se- 
cure an education. This work will 
be well paid for. One hundred or

cash value represented in 100 such 
scholarship and expenses for one 
year is approximated $25,000. No 
one need lack when such ample 
provision is made. The enterprise 
and liberality of The Constitution

years old. Jack had gone to his 
work in the mines and their moth- 
er had left them and visited town, 
more than a mile away. The light 
was observed by people in town, 
and by the time any one could get

Gen. A. j. Warner. 

The following high compliment 
paid to Gen. Warner by the At- 
ita Constitution: 
"The Constitution congratulates 
moral A. J. Warner, late of O- 
', upon his wisdom in becoming 
c itizen of the state of Georgia. 
General Warner has established 
himself in Dahlonega, and declares 
his faith in the future of that sec- 
tion of Georgia. He has already 
i red the investment of much 
capital, and is now engaged in the 
promotion of an electric road from j 
Gainesville to the thrifty little 
mountain city. He has other pros 
jects-of like character, and to a 
i of his energy and capabilities 
there is great opportunity in the 
undeveloped resources of northeast 
Georgia. General Warner is a 
an of strong business instincts. 
He has about him none of the char- 
acteristics of the promoter, but is a 
genuine common sense business 
man, knowing a tact when he sees 
and capable of intelligently j 
presenting it to others. 

It is the mistake of a great many 
investors to leave their money in 
the south, and returning to their 
northern homes, to await the re- 
ports of agents. General Warner 
has set a good example by follow^, 
his investment, and now with 
wife and family he has located him- 
self in one of our militia districts, 
and proposes to watch the growth 
of his owncapital. 

This is why we congratulate him 
in a double sense-that he has ins 
vested in Georgia property, and 
that he has become a citizen so as 
to give Georgia the benefit of his 
wise counsel."

James Beck, the eighteen -yeai'SToki 
son of Asbury Beck, nearoCane 
Creek law ground crushing his life 
out, where he remained until Sat- 
urday morning before being found. 
Mr. Beck was in Dahlonega where 
they were to meet. After waiting 
nearly all day for his son he started 
home awhile before sandowm, but 
instead of going home spent the 
night with Henry Ducket, little 
dreaming that his boy was lying, a 
corpse not far away. Mrs. Beck 
and the rest of the family could not 
understand why neither returned, 
causing them to spqnd a restless 
night. When j£;e father returned 
home in the corning, going a 
near way,, he..was r not aware. ol his 
son's absence mnfil he reached his 
family. This caused all to be 
alarmed and a search commenced. 
They followed the old road, the 
one the sou was last seen traveling, 
being ^joined on the way by other 
searchers, and had not gone more 
than about a mile before Johnnie 
Ferguson discovered the sad sight. 
There lay the boy under a half 
cord of green wood which he had 
chained together to bring to town. 
One arm was resting under his 
forehead, and from all appearance 
death came instantly. The steers 
had pulled around a little ways and 
remained there all this time. The 
wagon was overturned while he 
was endeavoring to drive round a 
falleng tree, and no one had passed 
by. Coroner McGuirc learning

Mining k Milling Co, 

The Crown Mountain properties 
arc situated in the very heart of the 
Georgia gold belt and is in the rad: 
ting center of all the leading gold 
veins of the Dahlonega district. 
They embrace what is believed to be 
the mother lode of the Appelachian 

The extensive and rich ore bod- 
ies in sight upon these properties 
assure long continues mining op- 
erations and the indisputable guar- 
antee of the permanent and increase 
ing value of the stock of "The 
Crown Mountain Co." 

The projectors of this company 
were the i'n'st to revive the mi: 
interest in this district in 1896. 
After three years of careful and 
hanstive examination of all the 
mines of the district of reputation 
as gold producers, and they had the 
choice of all, they selected the 
Crown Mountain combination as the 
ideal gold mine of the district which 
would yield or produce the most 
gold with the least expense. This 
opinion is shown by all tie mining 
engineers, mining experts, miners 
and citizens of .any standing in the 
district who are familiar with th« 
properties. As an evidence of this 
we here state that mo iv of the citi- 
zens of the town of Dahlonega and 
vicinity have taken stock in this 
company than have in all the other 
companies combined that have 
oragnized in this district. 

The company is to be managed by 
practical business men — who have 
given much of their time to mining 
and mining operations, and always 
with unvarying success. 

The present directory is for the 
most part composed of men who 
have had much experience in the 
mining enterprises, and under its 
efficient and economical manage- 
ment, and by reason of a visible 
gold supply that is practically inex- 
haustible, an investment in the stock 
of this company is undoubtedly safe. 

The capitalization of the company 
is not commensurate with the visi- 
ble productiveness of the properties 
and is meagre compared with the 
capitalization ofother justly celebrat- 
ed mines in the district, but tht 
management believe it will be able to 
make the stock worth above par 
; • We invite all prospective it 
tors to make a personal inspection 
of the mines. We also invite them 
to examine all the other mim 
district — compare the quality and 
quantity of the ore and the facilities 
for economically treating the same. 
We hsve no fears of where the choice 
will fall. 

Until further notice of advance in 
prices, the stock of this comn/inv 
will be sold at the minimum rate of 
65.00 per share. For futher infor- 
mation applv to J. F. or J. H. Moore,

A Queer Find, 

Last Friday evening while saws 
ins a large .80-foot log at Fennels 
Mill at Peebles,, the saw struck 
something supposed to be a piece 
of iron and;backingthe log f rom'.tbe 
saw and chopping into it, it prov- 
ed to bo an open, one bladed pock- 
et knife, with a bone or deer han- 
dle, and about seven and one half 
inches in length. It is supposed to 
have been put there by some hunt- 
ter in an early day while the tree 
was quite small. The point of the 
knife was found to rest within four 
inches of the heart of the stick, 
and about five feet aboyo the 
ground and with the handle point- 
ed upward at an angle of about 45 
degrees, the outer end of the bans 
die being covered with three inches 
of solid oak, containing about fifty 
growths, the three at the point 
was twentysfive inches in diameter 
and must have made a growth of 
eight inches, or increased its diam- 
eter sixteen inches since the knife 
was placed there. It was impossi- 
ble to count the growths correctly, 
but from the first healing of the 
growths to the outer suiface it exs 
cceded 100 growths of years. —

A Great Livestock S 

The livestock department ,of the 

juthern In ter -State Fair has always 
been a prominent feature. The exhibits 
of livestock »,s the Fair of 1809 were far 
phead of any previous show held in the 
Pouth, and the shii 5 last year wore 
quit< i )'/ iv in th ! nil 1 Si i 
ind ed there wa Y pi Fai: t it 

made as good a showing last year-^-tkafc 
Was the great Illinois State Fair, held 

; Springfield. 

The success of the livestock show at 
Atlanta has been attained through the 
Influence of extremely liberal premiums. 
Most of the stock shown comes from the 
Jforth and West, and large premium-; 
have been necessary to induce exhibit- 
ors to bring their stock suoh a great dis- 

The Fair Munngement has determined 
to offer even luim-r premiums for stock 
to he shown this fall, therefore, it is safe 
to presume that exhibits will be cor- 
respondingly larger. Special classes 
have been opened for livestock owned 
In Georgia, South Carolina and Ala- 
bama. This has been done for the rea- 
son that Southern breeding interests are 
hardly ready at this time to compete 
with Northern and Western herds that 
represent many years of careful breed- 
ing, but etock owned in the states 
named is also eligible -ior entry in the 
classes open to the world, hence South- 
ern breeders may compete for two sets 
of premiums with the same cattle. 

The premium list for the livestock de- 
partment of the Southern Inter-State 
Fair is now ready for distribution, and 
Secretary T. ,-H. Martin, at Atlanta,

Told by a Tree. 

Railroad Comissioncr (Rogers, 
who was here Saturday, was talk- 
ing about tho value of North Caros 
Una timber. He said that he had 
only one story to relate , and that ; 
was a big one. A man in Western 
North Carolina was selling stand- 
ing timber— walnut trees. The" 
man who was buying came to one 
very handsome tree. He told the 
owner he could pay as much as $50 
for the tree. This excited tho own- 
er. He did not sell, but sent for 
experts. The owner got §1500 
for the tree (curled walnut) as it 
stood. The man who cut it down 
realized $3000 for it on the cars, lit 
was shipped to New York '.veneer- 
ed onessixtecnth to one-quarter 
inch. The sales were watched and 
estimatedras best could be done, 
and when all was disposed of it 
tnrnedjout that tree brought near 
$60,000. The point of it is this: 
We have no idea as to the value of 
our timber, much of which is being 
sent North for a mere song. We 
can become rich in North Carolina 
if we work our raw material as 
others work it for us. — High Point

Dahlonega, Ga, 


Established at Head of Ten- 
nessee, Ga. 

The Tennessee heads in Rabun 
Gap and passes down through a 
nice valley of land to the North 
Carolina line, a distance of six 
miles; at this point the hills close 
in to the river, and shut off the 
valley. From the Gap through the 
valley, to the North Carolina line 
the direction is north. To com- 
plete this valley, there flow in 
from the southwest side Betty's 
Creek, Taylor's creek, and Wolf 
Creek; from the northeast side 
there flow in several small streams 
and among them Mud Creek, on 
which is a beautiful water fall. In 
this direction the valley is about 
nine miles across. 

Near the center of this valley is 
located the Baptist church, known 
as Dillard's meeting house, 
this place a deed was made by Mr. 
James Dillard for a Baptist church 
and cemetery. The deed provided 
that in said church other denomi 
nations were to worship except on 
the days when the church was used 
by the Baptists. It is true that 
Gen. Miller had given a tract for a 
Methodist church just across the 
road from the Rabun Gap High 
School, but as said deed never went 
to record, it was lost sight of. This 
deed was given nearly seventy 
years ago by Gen. Miller, who 
owned a fine farm at the head of 
Tennessee river at Rabun gap, up- 
on which he built a fine farm 
house, painted it white and it is 
known up to this time as the 

White House." 

At this place Dr. H. V. M. Mil- 
ler, who died several years ago in 
Atlanta, spent most of his boy- 
hood days. 

The Methodist preached from 
year to year at Dillard's rneeting- 
e, not having any church or 
organized society of their own up 
to the year 1875, when Rev. Geo, 
E. Bonner of the North Ga. Con. 
ference and Rev. W. A. Nelson, a ' everyday. In closing up the ser- 
Baptist evangelist of Henderson vice at the end of the week, we 
county, North Carolina, joined in found that there had been sixty 

! : protracted religious service at this 
church, which resulted in a gra- 
cious revival meeting. Many who 
were converted at this meeting 
joined the Baptist church and sev- 
enteen joined the Methodist church 
and these were organized by Rev. 
Mr, Bonner into a Methodist 
church. This was the first organ- 
ized Methodist church on th» head 
of Tennessee river in Georgia. 

In 1876,. Mr. Bonner was return- 
ed the Clayton Mission. 

This church, Dillard's meeting 
house, was located in .eight miles 
of where I was brought up and 
^herein 1876, I attended a pro- 
tracted meeting with Bro. Bonner. 
The Rev. J. V. Stipe was our pre- 
siding elder that year, and held a 
quarterly conference at Dillard's 
meeting house, embracing the 
first Sunday in October. I accom- 
panied him from Dahlonega to 
that place. On our way there 
Brothers tip©'' preached at Der- 
rick's on the Tallulah river, in the 
woods, where a church was after- 
wards built. I 
On Saturday at eleven o'clock 
we arrived at Dillard's meeting- 
house. Brother Stipe had rquest- 
ed me to preach at that hour. As 
I had never preached in that sec- 
tion, I was much embarrassed. 

We had a fine congregation to 
talk to. I wish to relate the con- 
dition of the church-house. It 
good large building with 
two doors of entrance. It was 
weather-boarded and had the win- 
dows cut out but no lights in them. 
The benches were in a bad broken 
condition. Everything about the 
house was a state of neglect and 
disorder; and it was reported that 
the membership was also, to some 
extent, in a state of disorder, as 
they had not yet rallied from 
the state of war-times. 

When we entered the stand it 
was a small affair, closed at one 
end, and scarcely large enough for 
two persons to sit on the seat com- 
fortably, so I occupied the stand 
alone. While at secret prayer be- 
fore service, I had it in mind to 
give the membership of the 
church a talk about the bad con- 
dition of their house of worship ; 
but while at prayer I fully de- 
cided that if the members could 
worship in the house, I ought to be 
glad to preach the gospel to them, 
I dismissed the thought of re- 
proving them from my mind. 

I well remember my text. It 
was Matthew, 7th chapter and 7th 
verse: "Ask and ye shall receive 
etc." At the conclusion three 
young people came up and kneel- 
ed down for yrayer, and were con- 
verted during the meeting. One 
of them, Mr. Taylor, afterwards, I 
learned, became a Baptist preach- 

odd conversions ; forty two of the 
number had given their names to 
become members of the Methodist 
church. I think as many of these 
as eight or ten were heads of fami- 

That evening, I went to my 
mother's eight miles down the 
valley of the Tennessee river, and 
returned in time next day to hear 
Brother Stipe preach a great ser- 
mon on the chapter in Corinth- 
ians which has thirteen verses. 
A great congregation was present 
and much feeling among the peo- 
ple was manifested. 

It was decided to continue the 
meeting during the week. Broth- 
er Stipe preached again at night. 
Monday morning he left for Dah- 

3ga, and left the meeting in the 
hands of Mr. Bonner and myself. 
I was requested to preach every 
other day, which I tried to do. 
On Monday night there were a 
good many converts. Among 
the first, as I recollected, was my 

hew, John Howard, of Rabun 

Gap. The services conti ; > ued with 

terest from day through the 

week, and there were 

I have attended quite a number 
of revival meetings since 1843. 
This one, I think equaled any 
that I ever attended in its effects, 
at that time upon thejpeople and 
in the results that have followed. 
On Sunday, Rev. Mr. Bonner re- 
ceived these applicants into the 
church after due examination and 
the performance of the rites of 

This revival service and the one 
the year before began quite a rev- 
olution in this beautiful valley at 
the head of Tennesse river. A re- 
vival has attended the religious 
service at this church every year 
since that time. 

At present the membership of 
the church is between two and 
three hundred. The Baptist 
church has also been much im- 
proved, and its membership large- 
ly increased in numbers. Instead 
of one old rickety church-house, 
there are now two nice buildings. 
The Baptist have a nice church, 
sixty feet long, painted, and well 
finished up on the inside, at this 
location. A mils away, the Meth- 
odists have an excellent large 
church building, located near Ra- 
bun Gap High School. 

At each of these churches, on 
the Sabbath, there is a large well- 
attended Sunday School, and 
preaching about twice a month at 
each church. The peoale turn out 
to these services and fill the house. 
In 1875 there were many still- 
houses scattered among the hills 
surrounding this valley, and there 
was much drunkeness and immor- 
I ality among the people. Prom 
that time till this, there has been 
a gradual growth and improve- 
ment among- the people, from the 
oldest to the youngest, until the 
still-houses have all been removed, 
and now there is very little drunk- 
eness among the people of that 
section, and Sabbath hunting has 
been abandoned. 

The good influences hero haye 
been extended and felt by people 
beyond in the other settlements. 

These good results have been 
brought about by the churches, 
and the Rabun Gap High School, 
which institution was planted there 
by Prof. W. A. Curtis, a Chrstian 
gentleman from Hayesville, North 
Carolina. He not only established 
the School but superintended the 
education of the students himself 
for 16 years. This school is still 
being carried on by educated Chris- 
tian men and women, and has been 
a great factor in the reformation 
which has occurred among thepeo- 

Prof. Curtis gave his personal 
attention and aided much in the 
remarkable reviyal of 1876, and 
by his personal influence, led 
many of his students to the cross 
and sound reformation. Prof. 
Curtis very kindly donated an acre 
of ground, being part of the plot 
of land which he owned at that 
place, on which to erect a Metho- 
dist church. At present he is pub, 
lishing a clean weekly paper, The 
Franklin Press at Franklin, North 

From what I have learned of 
Rev. Mr. Nelson, he was a most 
excellent Christian gentleman. 
He died some two or three years 
ago at Hendersonyille, North 

Rev. Geo E. Bonner also died in 
Atlanta several years ap-o. I be- 
came well acquainted with him in 
his Christian work. I thought 
him one of the lundest and best 
Christian men I ever met. In 
prayer I considered him possessing 

remarkable power, as much so as 
anyone I ever heard pray. In 
thinking it over, I often rejoice 
that I rnet him and had social in- 
tercourse with him, and the privi- 
lege of religious [communion with 
him. I am made better by being 
with him. 

1 wish to add in conclusion, that 
a protracted meeting held here evn 
ery year, has resulted in conver- 
sions and addition to the church ot 
new members. I have attended 
some of these revival meetings.

'much comment, some claiming 
'that it "was just newspaper talk," 
disbelieving it, thinking that there 
is no such a man in existence. It is 
certainly a fact. He is still 
alive and was seen by Ccorge W. 
Walker, of this county, no longer

do The Cherokee Advance has this 
for to say about Gen. Warner who has 
' a . recently located in Dahlonega: Gen. 
inv I Warner has been a resident of this 
vas county for several years engaged 
u all this time as General Manager 
and one of the principal owners of 
e ; ! ! j the old Cherokee mine which he 
has built up by his intelligent ef- 
to rank with the leading mines 
:\ . of the state as a gokl producer 
Jgg I and has shown himself eminently 
xi- qualified to take charge of such ex- 
KM tensive enterprises "as the Crown 
. (>s j Mountain Gold Mine, and the 
sL I building of an electric line from 
Gainesville to Dahlonega. While 
? a_ ! we claim Gen. Warner as a citizen 
d- of Cherokee, and know his mental 
';. i capacity and industiial worth, it is 
,,._ j a matter of pride that the great ins 
ile | dustrial interests of ether sections 
M , t . I appreciate his merits and demand 
to his personal supervision to push 
ses their enterprise. Such men as 
ck j Gen. Warner honor any section in 
which he may be placed and Geor- 
gia is proud tobaye his presence 
and co operation in her various in- 
dustrial pursuits.

An article given advice to boys 
slates: "Get a reputation for lying 
or tricky prevarication and you're 
gone. Get it for a year, and it will 
stick to you for a lifetime." The 
above is literally true. By look- 
ing,, acting or telling one lie- to one 
person you lose bis confidence fori 
eyer. What he may tell others 
about you on account of that one 
lie may cause you the loss of the 
respect of many more. A' liar is 
forever checked ia everything. He 
can't get the confidence o-f anybody. 
He is the most contemptible crea- 
ture, God ever made. Of all the 
people in the world let us be 
thrown in the company of a liar

A new and strange enterprise, 
such as has never before been un- 
dertaken in this country,, is con- 
templated in Massachuetts,. viz: a 
frog farm. Ten acres of land has 
been purchased, and they are now 
rapidly putting it in shape for the 
novel product they propose cnltis 
vating. This tract of land is ad- 
mirably suited for the purpose, as 
a stream of water passes through 
it. Artificial ponds of various 
limensions will be used in which 
to propogate these little animals, 

;nd as they grow will be changed 
from the smaller to the larger 
ponds. There seems to be a great 
demand in some states for frogs as 
an article of food, and also for 
them in the study of natural hiss 
tory and medical research, and the 

mpply is not sufficent for the de- 
mand. We don't think, however, 
that Eatonton would take much 
stock in such an enterprise.— Mes-

It was once usual for Highland 
shepherds to take their dogs into 
church and leave them outside the 
pews. Two shepherds at enmity 
sat on opposite sides of the asile 
one Sunday, and soon after the 
sermon began, the dogs^one a 
collie and the other not — seemed 
to enter into their masters' quar- 
rel. Tho shepherds egged on their 
dogs in undertones, and soon there 
was a real fight in progress. Most 
of those in the immediate neigh-, 
borhood craned their necks over 
the pews to see how the encounter 
was coming out, and not a few 
were standing up. Tho minister's 
patience was untimately exhausted, 
and so he called to his hearers and 

"Ah, weel, my bretherin, I see 
ye are more interested in the dog 
fight than in my sermon and so 1'

When the quantity of food taken 
is too large or the quality too rich 
heartburn is likely to follow, and 
especially so if the digestion has 
aeen weakened by constipation. Eat 
slow'y and not too freely of easily

thoroughly. Let six hours elaps 
between meals and when you feel a

The company is to be managed by 
practical business men — who have. 
given much of their time to mining 
and mining operations, and always 
with' unvarying success. 

The present directory is for the 
most part composed of men ' 
have had much experience ii 
mining enterprises, and under its 
efficient and economical manage- 
ment, and by reason of a visible 
gold supply that is practically inex- 
haustible, an investment in the stock 
of this company is undoubtedly safe . 

The capitalization of the company 
is not commensurate with the visi- 
ble productiveness of the properties 
and is meagre compared with the 
eapi'talizflition ofother justly celebrat- 
ed mines- in the district, but the 
management believe it will be able to 
make the stock'worth above par. 
'_ We invite all' prospective inves- 
tors to make a personal inspection 
of the mines. We also invite them 
to' examine all the other mines in the 
district — compare the quality and 
quantity of the ore and the facilities 
for economically treating the same. 
We have no fears of where the choice 
will fall. 

Until further notice o'f advance in

some years ago and that his attor-

having witnesses to. prove that he 
was not to live with her agreeing

On inst Sunday while Rey. John 
Rider was making his way to 
[ church in Hightower district he 
was caWed upon by a Mr. Dispain 
and Miss Mattie Lingerfeltto make 
them man and wife. The request 
was complied with right in the 
middle of the road while the sun 
was beaming down at its hottest 
and great drops of sweat was fal- 
ling from their brows like dew 
drops giving way to the mornings

went away feeling just as happy 
as if they had been wedded in a 
beautiful decorated church to the 
tune of the wedding inarch. 

Last Saturday tho following per-

Some of the parties claim that 
they arc already on the lino while 
others assort that they have never 
been paid for the land necessary 
for such change. A portion of 
them will carry the matter to the

Two loads of South Georgia 
melons were brought up to Dah- 
lonega last week from Gainesville, 
the first of the season for this mar- 
ket, but they looked two old to 
sell well. After remaining on the 
square a portion of two days one 
man carried his load back or out of 
town, while tho other disposed of 
his to a merchant at a very low 

A man was telling ns last week 
ofa'certain person in this county 
who is drawing a U. S. pension 
having witnesses that were born 
after the war. If this be true it 
should be discontinued. Uncle 
Sam has plenty of money but 
none should receive any of if unless 
entitled, yet some are drawing 
money that are no more entitled 
than we are, and we are certain 
that we have no claim. 

Undoubtedly Dahlonega has the 
cheapest lot of organs and pianos 
in Georgia, other musical instrus 
ments being worth nothing judgs 
ing from the last tax returns made 
by many owning them. And it is 
the same way by the merchandise 
owned by merchants and many oth- 
er things we could mention. The 
city council met the other day to 
adjust the matter but found so 
many in the same channel that they 
decided to let it go. 

Mr. Breyman, vice-president of

On last Saturday morning be- 
tween the hours of one and two 
o'clock Melius Goudtock was shot 
in the icft breast by Will- Wright, 
both colored, in the stable of 
Moore Bros. Ben Elrod, another 
negro, was in the stable at the 
time but claims to know but little 
about the difficulty, stating that 
they were quarreling over 15 cents, 
when he went to sleep and he knew 
nothing more until he heard the 
report of the pistol and Nelius 
told him that he was shot and to 
go for a physician. Drs. Whelchel 
and Head were soon present who 
found that a ball from a 38 caliber 
had entered near the nipple of his 
loft breast and came out below the 
shoulder blade about two inches 
from the back bone, being a very 
dangerous shot likely to produce 
death. Nelius has but little to say 
about it, but it is supposed that 
they were playing cards— some 
think that all three were-- causing 
the whole trouble. Marshal Har- 
bison and Sheriff Davis were noti- 
fied who searched every nook and 
corner for Wright, but no where 
could ho be found. After day- 
light Sheriff Davis gained enough 
information to lead him to believe 
the negro had gone in the direction 
of Lula, and in company with Will 
Rice left in persuit. They had not 
gone but a few miles until they 
found that they were on the right 
track and followed on until he was 
discoverd at George Bowens, 21 
miles from Dahlonega, getting a 
lunch where he was arrested with- 
out any trouble and brought back 
and lodged in jail. Wright said 
he had to do what he did in order 
to save himself. This may be the 
case as wo understand that Nelius 
said if Wright hadn't shot him 
when he did he would have got him. 
Wright was brought out before 
Esquire Allen on Monday who 
postponed the investigation until 
further developments. Nelius is a 
Lumpkin county negro who is yet 
in his teens and is looked upon as 
being a bad boy. The other ne- 
gro came here about a ..ear ago, 
is a good worker and has been con- 
ducting himself all right as far as 
we know, not being of age either, 


War Will Continue. 

A recent dispatch says: Cap-

commanding Co. I, 3Sth United 
States Volunteers, that returned 
home a few days ago, said today 
that the Pmfjpine insurrection will 
-continue. lie bleievcs the United 
States will eventually have to with- 
draw from the Philippines. ■ 

Captain Allen believes Aguinaldo 
would lake the first opportunity to 
make bis escape and get out into 
the mountains. He believes Agui- 
naido is just as much an insur rector 
as he ever was, Captain Allen was 
democratic candidate for congress 
last year against Congressman 
Landis, the race being made for 
him by his friends while he was 
serving in the Philipincs.

\ Mining k Milling Co, 

The Crown Mountain properties 
are situated in the very heart of the 
Georgia gold belt and is in the radia.- 
ting center of all the leading gold 
veins of the Dahlonega district. 
They embrace what is believed to be 
the mother lode of tho Appelachian 

The extensive and rich ore bod- 
ies in sight upon these properties 
assure long continues mining op- 
erations and the indisputable guar- 
antee of the permanent and increas- 
ing value of the stock of "The 
Crown Mountain Co." 

The projectors of this company 
were the fli'st to revive the mining 
interest in this district in 1896. 
After three years of careful and ex- 
haustive examination of all the 
mines of the district of reputation 
as gold producers, and they had the 
choice of all, they selected the 
Crown Mountain combination as the 
ideal gold mine of the district which 
would yield or produce the most 
gold with the least expense. This 
opinion is shown by all tl e mining 
engineers, mining experts, miners 
and citizens of any standing in the 
district who are familiar with the 
properties. As an evidence of this 
we here state that moiv of the citi- 
zens of the town of Dahlonega and 
vicinity have taken stock in this 
company than have in all the other 
companies combined that have 
oragnized in this district. 

The company is to be managed by 
practical business men — who have 
given much of their time to mining 
and mining operations, and always 
with unvarying success. 

The present directory is for the 
most part composed of men who 
have had much experience in the 
mining enterprises, and under its 
efficient and economical manage- 
ment, and by reason of a visible 
gold supply that is practically inex- 
haustible, an investment in the stock 
of this company is undoubtedly safe. 

The capitalization of the company 
is not commensurate with the visi- 
ble productiveness of the properties 
and is meagre compared with the 
capitalization ofothcr justly celebrat- 
ed mines in the district, but the 
management believe it will be able to 
make "the stock worth above par. 

We invito all prospective inves- 
tors to make a personal inspection 
of the mines. We also invite them 
to examine all the other mines in the 
district — compare the quality and 
quantity of the ore and the facilities 
for economically treating tho same. 
We have no fears of where the choice 
will fall.
